Pokhara is the undisputed tourism capital of Nepal and it has every reason for that. It is often also called the city of Lakes because of the presence of no. of Lakes and is surrounded by High mountain ranges from where one has some good short and long treks with Poon Hill Gorepani trek being the most popular. Having just one full day at our disposal, we could ill afford such expeditions but had atleast hoped to do some Paragliding from Sarangkot. From Trekkers Lodge, we got a beautiful view of the Annapurnas in the morning. We got up and ready in a good time and left for the Shanti Stupa built in the 1990's. From there we got a good Panoramic view of Pokhara city and the Phewa Lake as the Stupa lises on a Hilltop. It was quite hot already and we decided to visit the Seti Gorge and Davis Fall after that. Davis Falls or Devis Fall is named after an English woman who fell in the gorge. These places were quite crowded by the time we had reached there and after getting a few photographs clicked, it was time for some lunch.
We had not had the opportunity of trying their local cuisine till now and ordered some Nepalese Thali. Along with some Gorkha Beer and Momos, it was perfect meal on a hot afternoon. By the time we finished lunch, the weather had taken a drastic change and on our way to Bats cave it started pouring heavily. Visting the Bats Cave with the heavenly downpour was an adventure in itself and it felt really dark and deep inside. It poured and poured that day and our plans of Paragliding all but faded yet we decided to go to Sarangkot Peak from there just for a drive even if nothing else materializes. The drive was beautiful in the rains and even scary at times as the roads had become slippery with so much downpour. We reached the top but by that time there was no left there and all the paragliders and tourists had come down. So after sometime we too decided to do so.
